BREAKING: Detroit Lions starting DE Kerry Hyder carted off field

If you are a fan of an NFL football team, preseason games probably make you nervous because of the chance of injuries.

Well, that’s exactly what happened on Sunday as Detroit Lions starting defensive end Kerry Hyder went down with what looked to be a lower leg injury.

Lions head coach Jim Caldwell came out onto the field to check on Hyder before he was carted off the field.

This is obviously very unfortunate news for the Lions and their fans as Hyder led the Lions with eight sacks during a breakout 2016 season. With Ezekiel Ansah currently on the PUP list, the Lions are already shorthanded at the defensive end position.
